From the smoke and panic-filled opening scene in which Vivian and her werewolf pack are driven out of their home, listeners will be seduced by this tale and by Bresnahan's outstanding narration. Enthralling is not too strong a word to describe Klause's story of a beautiful teenaged werewolf who finds herself irresistibly drawn to a human boy. Bresnahan reads the deliciously sensual story with relish, inhabiting even the smallest roles. Klause's language is full of words with double meanings suggestive of the werewolves' dual nature. Bresnahan conveys the quick, sharp yelps of the young males and the low-throated snarls of females vying for dominance in a manner that expresses their wolf selves while still preserving their human qualities. Her naturalness allows these supernatural creatures to feel credible. Adolescent listeners will devour this, regretting that they are only human. D.M.L.
